Here is Part 4 of the list of artists that have yet to be nominated for the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, according to BestRockBands.com. Parts 5 and 6 will drop on Monday and Friday next week. The description of each is from the article as well.
- Country Jope & The Fish, "Vietnam Song" (NSFW LANGUAGE): San Francisco psychedelia met Berkeley social commentary in the ’60s. They were ubiquitous at festivals and on radio.
- Jim Croce, "I’ll Have To Say I Love You In A Song": His life was cut short before he had a chance to truly develop but the trove of hits he left behind was substantial.
- The Crystals, "Da Doo Ron Ron": Even more than the Ronettes, the Crystals were Phil Spector’s go-to girl group. Darlene Love and La La Brooks were (and still are) dynamic singers.
- Dick Dale, "Misirlou": The man invented surf guitar. That’s enough.
- The Damned, "Neat Neat Neat": The first bona fide British punk band, who later expanded their sound.
And that’s Five For Friday for May 20, 2022.
